 A good signal here at 23:53UTC of Reggae Music with OM coming thru for a couple seconds! Signal strength is 10 and 15 over 9 here.
Another reggae song at 21:56UTC
More Reggae Music at 00:06UTC Do not know any of these tunes plus shazam does not do well on USB stations!

2355 Weak but audible, rock music
0013 much weaker, some trace audio at times, but mostly only know something's there by what I can see on the waterfall
0021 Heard CW and SSTV, mixed with music. Neither CW nor SSTV copyable here
0023 more CW, another SSTV, still over music. Probable different pirate, chat room says it's Pee Wee
0025 music gaining strength but still below noise floor

At 2357 heard what may have been an ID but there was so much echo effect I couldn't understand what was being said.

Tuned in at 0008utc, heard nothing but moderate background noise.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Traces of music here.
Better ar 0025z. I am pretty sure there are two stations, one playing reggae music and one sending SSTV. Aha, that was Pee Wee.
